A proposal to build a senior living center on 16 acres of undeveloped land near Meijer in Whitestown is being revived.
Lawrenceburg-based Euson Lindsay Health Holdings LLC has filed plans to build a seven-building senior living center northeast of Main Street and Central Boulevard at 5990 S. 700E.
The center would have 72 units within six single-story buildings. Two would be reserved for rehab, two for long-term care and two for memory care. The seventh building would be used as an office and clubhouse.
The project would be built on land previously approved for a senior living project that was never developed.
In 2016, Carmel-based Mainstreet received approval to build a facility consisting of 96 beds spread throughout eight buildings.
The $20 million project was known as NextHome of Whitestown. Construction was expected to begin last year, but the developer was not able to secure funding for it, according to town documents.
The property, zoned for multi-family development, is part of land Eagle Alliance Church owns. In 1998, the church purchased 98 acres in the area. It sold 16 acres to Zionsville Community Schools. The remaining acreage—79 acres including 10 acres of drainage ponds—is still owned by Eagle Alliance.
Aaron Hurt of Civil and Environmental Consultants presented the project to the Whitestown Plan Commission this week. The Whitestown Plan Commission approved Euson Lindsey's development plan Monday night.
Construction would begin in the spring and take 18 months to complete. It was not immediately clear whether Euson Lindsey intended to buy the property once development plans were approved.
Hurt told the plan commission that Euson Lindsey could potentially develop the property further, adding more buildings in the future.
